Livy notices him the moment he walks into the coffee shop. He's heart-stoppingly stunning, with a blue-eyed gaze so piercing she's almost too distracted to take his order. When he walks out the door, she thinks she'll never see him again. Then she finds the note he left on his napkin . . . signed M.

All he wants is one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure. Every defense mechanism Livy has adopted during her solitary life is at risk of being obliterated by this confounding man. He's obnoxious but well-mannered. He's a gentleman but aloof. He's passionate but emotionless. Yet the fascination is so powerful, Livy can't deny him... or herself.

M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addictive that she never knew existed -- and that she fears only he can satisfy. But she senses that behind the fast cars, fancy suits, and posh apartment, he's aching inside. To have him, body and soul, she'll have to brave his dark secrets. Delving into his world and breaking down his defenses become her obsession - an obsession that could shatter her heart beyond repair...

Set in London, ONE NIGHT: PROMISED has all the elements that Malpas’s fans love about her novels: a relatable heroine, a mysterious and complicated hero, and of course steamy passion. Readers won’t have long to wait for the rest of Livy and M’s store either. The second book, One Night: Denied is scheduled for November 2014 and the final installment will out in early 2015.

Confession time: I have never read Jesse’s trilogy *gasp* so when I was asked to review this book, I was a total Jodi Ellen Malpas virgin. Best decision I made all week. My favorite thing about this author is that she knows exactly how to pull out the stops and show a girl an addictively good time. I haven’t walked away this satisfied in a long time. If she keeps writing books like this, then I give her permission to pop my cherry whenever she likes. 

Slow building, all consuming, and powerful. 

“M” is an enigma. A dominant with a killer body made to entice a girl with the promise of heaven and sin. He uses both to execute unforgettable power plays that will leave your mind and body on fire. Boundaries are nonexistent to this alpha, and he is not ashamed to use whatever means necessary to overcome any obstacles or any resistance that stands in his way. I have to admit though, there is something seriously mesmerizing and sexy about a man who knows exactly how to use his charm, confidence, and arrogance to take what he wants. 

FYI ladies, you might want to hold on tight to your panties because after you’ve gotten a full taste of “M” and his "quirks" you’ll not only lose your heart but those as well, just sayin'.

Livy is a force to be reckoned with; she is down to earth, yet holds a bit of sass. Livy doesn’t hesitate to let “M” know when he stepped out of place. I cheered hard for her when she gave back as good as she got! I loved and adored her strength (As did “M”). Her girl next-door demeanor is easy to connect to as well as alluring. Frankly, she was damn refreshing compared to some of the heroines I have read recently. 

My one tiny complaint is that she gave in too easily at times. However, I must admit, it did not bother me too much. If I had “M” running his hands over my body and whispering dirty thoughts in my ear I would also forgive whatever transgression I felt betrayed by rather quickly.

“M” and Livy make one hell of an introduction to Jodi’s writing! The connection brewing between them made for a beautiful blend of secrets, chemistry, and frustration. The characters held a depth and intense magnetism with such vivid visuals that it was easy to sink myself into them. “M” and Livy's elusive relationship with its witty banter and roller coaster like tendencies added an extra dimension of excitement. 

This author has taught me not to make assumptions. The direction this story took was NOT anywhere close to what I was suspecting. Jodi took everything I thought and turned it topsy turvy. Holy fuck—THAT ENDING!! It left my heart beating wicked fast as I was trying to take it all in. My brain was screaming NO!! NO!! NO!! That last 20% or so will have you cursing your tablet (and sometimes Jodi).

Major book hangover! Pure. Brilliance.

One Night Promised is a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED read from me. If you are looking for a gripping page-turner with unexpected twists, as well as kick ass characters that leave you wrapped up in them, then one click this book right now! Jodi Ellen Malpas DOES NOT even come close to disappointing.
